Start cleaning

Step 1: choose the pre-cleaner

You have two options for pre-cleaning your vehicle: Snow Foam or Tough Cleaner. These two products are perfect for preparing your vehicle for our Ceramic Seal or a deep cleaning. If you want to give your vehicle a daily wash, you can skip to step 2.

Option 1: Snow Foam
  • Use 150-200ml in a 1L foam lance and fill with 850-900ml water.
  • Spray Snow Foam evenly over the vehicle, making sure to apply a balanced layer to cover all dirt. Allow it to soak for 2-5 minutes depending on the strength being applied, but do not allow the vehicle to dry.
  • Rinse the vehicle thoroughly with a normal garden hose or similar to completely remove the foam.
  • Repeat the process again and this time after foaming, continue to soap the vehicle with a microfiber sponge, hand sponge.
Option 2: Tough Cleaner
  • Fill a bucket with Tough Cleaner and water to the desired strength (options: 1/3 – 1/6 – 1/9). Hard -> Soft.
  • Apply the Tough Cleaner liberally to the vehicle with even coverage. Allow it to soak for 2-5 minutes depending on the strength being applied, but do not allow the vehicle to dry.
  • Gently wash the vehicle with a microfiber sponge.
  • Rinse the vehicle thoroughly with a normal garden hose or similar to completely remove the cleaner.

Step 2: your daily shampoo

Our Rise & Shine is perfect for your daily wash. We recommend always washing your motorcycle or car with our shampoo after using one of the pre-cleaners, with the exception of when you want to apply the ceramic coating. Using shampoo after a pre-cleaner is important for several reasons: it removes residues of the pre-cleaner, ensures pH neutralization, provides a smooth feeling and provides protection.

  • Fill your bucket with Rise & Shine and add the desired amount of water. Minimum use of 50ml Rise & Shine in 12 liters of warm water. For thicker foam, use proportionally more Rise & Shine.
  • Grab a microfiber sponge and make sure your motorcycle or car is completely covered in soapy water. Sponge the motorcycle, car or bicycle thoroughly in a circular motion, applying light pressure while washing the vehicle from front to back.
  • After all dirt has been removed, rinse the motorcycle thoroughly with water.

Use Aftercare

Step 3: Ceramic Protection

The Ceramic Seal is an easy-to-use, high-performance coating that provides a protective layer on the surface of motorcycle or car paint and other surfaces. It is important that the surface is completely clean and free of all residue. We recommend using one of our pre-cleaners to remove all dirt. Do not use any other product on the surface before applying the Ceramic Seal, as this may affect the adhesion to the surface. Follow these steps to apply:

  • Make sure the motorcycle is completely dry and clean. Take the Ceramic Seal and spray the product gently and gradually onto the motorcycle or car, section by section.
  • After spraying, rub the coating well into the paint with firm pressure in a circular motion. Work your way back slowly, section by section. Polish the Sealant until a high gloss is visible.

Note: For best results, allow the Ceramic Seal to dry for 24 hours.

Step 4: High Gloss

The Quick Detailer provides an immediate shine and wax finish. With a quick spray and wipe application, it can be used on both paintwork and other surfaces where you want to add a shine. The Quick Detailer is perfect for polishing your motorcycle after washing or just to quickly freshen up the motorcycle.

  • Make sure the motorcycle is completely dry and clean.
  • Spray the Quick Detailer on the surface and polish the product into the material.
  • Make sure the product is thoroughly buffed for a high shine.

Step 5: Lubrication

The-Lube is a powerful, anti-corrosive and transparent chain lubricant. The silicone in The-Lube penetrates the internal rubber parts and lubricates the chain, while PTFE ensures smooth operation between the metal.

  • Shake the spray can well before use.
  • Spray The-Lube from a distance of 10-15 cm.
  • Lubricate the chain well, both on the inside of the chain and on the sprocket.
  • Wipe off excess lubricant and repeat every 250-300 km.
